Phyllis Wheatley’s Community Resource Services program provides holistic, wraparound services and activities for individuals and families in and around North Minneapolis. Our coordinator works with families participating in our programs, as well as anyone in need of resources, to connect them with organizations and opportunities to help them overcome the barriers they face.
By partnering with other nonprofits in North Minneapolis, CRS ensures that once an individual enters our building, they receive assistance in all areas they may need it in. By building a network of service agencies, CRS is able to help folks with food assistance and other issues and provides referrals to agencies that exist to help.
Additionally, staff enliven the spaces in and around Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, providing fun, family-friendly, engaging activities like a Juneteenth celebration, open gym, game nights, book clubs, senior activities, and more.
